son Moore was very successfully
managing the campus while Mr.
Broughton Walton was engaged in
farming here. Mrs. Walton, the form-
er Lucy Keith, was a teacher in the

man, librarian at the girls' school. Mr.

bachelor, had charge of the dairy.
We discovered that we were in
time to attend the annual Alumni
Banquet at which we found a repre-
sentation of 93W of the class of
1930. We were addressed by Hon.
Edwin Hyatt, who gave a detailed
account of each member of the'class
of '30, some having won world-wide
and imperishable renown. After
listening to the accomplishment' and
successes of our classmates, Miss
Berry remarked, "I am glad to know
that the boys and girls of 1930 have
helped me to realize my dreams."
ln behalf of my client, the class
of 1930 of the Berry Schools, State
of Georgia, U. S. A. I hereby call
your attention to her last will and
testament. She being of sound mind,
memory and understanding, wishes
to bequeath to her nearest friends
those gifts which she has collected as
she has travelled through life. She
requests that those who receive these
gifts will be faithful to the trust.
We generously and freely be-
queath to the witty but yet unworthy
class of 1931 the name Seniors which
they have yearned for so long. With
this name goes the many privileges
and rights which are numberable.
Our love, sympathy and good will,
we fiing out to you, hoping that your
standard will be high.

We decided to visit England and
some of the European countries on
our next lap so we turned our heads
in that direction and gladly and fear-
lessly crossed the roaring Atlantic.
We made our first stop in London
where we were entertained by the
American Ambassador, Dave Hollo-
way and his beautiful wife, the form-
er Minnie Smith. Mrs. Holloway told
us of Claire Williams who is now re-
siding in Paris and is Mme. Marcus
de Paree, having married a French
nobleman shortly after her gradua-
tion from Berry. We decided to visit
Madame Paree and while in the city
of music and revelry we attended a
music concert at the Parker-Mulkey
music conservatory. We found to our
delight J. A. Parker head violinist
and J. C. Mulkey director of the or-
chestra while the conservatory was
founded and operated by these two
accomplished young men.
We found that we could make the
distance from Paris to Geneva in
time for the International Good Will
Conference which we were so eager
to attend since we knew we would
find Roy Bolt chairman of the con-
vention, as had been announced in
the newspapers of all countries for
some time. We also hoped to find
others of our Berry friends there.
We arrived during a speech on
"What The Individual Can Do To
Further Peace And Happiness Among
Nations". We recognized the speak-
er as Lollie Bracewell, who we later
found out, was working with a board
on foreign relations in Japan. Be-
fore the day was over we had the pri-
vilege of hearing Grady Sanders
speak. Grady was engaged in religi-
ous work, being pastor of the first
church of Shanghai, China. He in-
vited us to stop in China on our way
back to America, which we gladly
decided to do.
While in Shanghai we saw J. D.
Wallace and his wife, the former
Mary Chandler. J. D. was a promi-
nent undertaker in the Oriental city
and the proud father of 11 little
Since we had been gone a month,
we decided to make our way back to
our homeland and one morning we
found ourselves flying across the Pa-
cific, and before we realized it, we
were to our own America.
We landed in Los Angeles and
were met by the mayor of the town,
who was none other than our Berry
classmate, Harvey Rodgers, who had
married Elvie Maxwell. After their
college work was completed they had
gone to California. There he had
made millions in growing seedless
oranges and grapefruit, and now was
mayor of that great city. Mr. and
Mrs. Rodgers invited us to Visit them
and one day we motored out to Holly-
When our visit came t'o a close, we
decided to end our tour by going
back to our Alma Mater to see how
many of our classmates had stayed
to carry on the work of our schools.
We found Monroe Guyton at the
prow of the mighty ship with all mo-
tors running as smoothly as the pur-
ring of a monster kitten. Sam Mash-
burn was dean of the school. Other
workers and teachers were: Mr. and
Mrs. Edwin Barnett. Mr. Barnett
was Dean of Labor. Mrs. Barnett will
be remembered as Miss Thelma
Beard. Miss Geraldine Dillard, die-
tician at the girls' school. Mr. Hud-
